During a prayer service to start the beginning of our school year, teachers and staff were asked to select a cross that spoke to them. The cross offers hope and healing to all who call upon Christ. Like most, my journey has been filled with great joy coupled with great sadness. The love and support found within the community and school where I work has been an overwhelming source of hope and healing. The cross I chose is a reminder of the strength that overcomes suffering. With God in our hands, hearts, and minds all things are possible and miracles happen.
